Welcome to the UK Linguistics Olympiad
UKLO is a competition, like the Mathematical Olympiad or the National Cipher Challenge, for students who are still at school (or equivalent college) – any age, any ability level; but unlike other competitions, our competitors have to solve linguistic data problems. Thanks to our generous academic supporters, it’s completely free to both competitors and schools. UKLO also enters at least one team each year in the International Linguistics Olympiad, and in recent years the UK teams have been very successful.
